Fizzy and light, not much better than Miller to make up for the pricy import difference

Pours pale golden with a frothy white head. Taste is light with little sweetness. Adjuncts.

Guessing this the Japanese equivalent of Budweiser now ab have got there hands on it. To fair its a step up from bud buts its still got macro lager stamped all over it.

Bottle at masashi. Straw gold colour. Dough metallic flavor. Pretty much as expected.

pleispleis (92) - Maccagno, ITALY - MAY 27, 2017
lattina 33 cl, schiuma media grana evanescente, colore oro limpido, al naso e in bocca malto, metallica, carbonatazione moderata, lieve dolce con percettibile amaro nel finale. Una lager da battaglia come tante 27.05.17

radassace (299) - SCOTLAND - MAY 26, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours light golden amber with a small white head. Aroma is sweet malt, touch of caramel, hay, honey and some lemon. Carbonation rushing up glass. Very smooth. Sweet to taste, malty, leading into a light lemony bitterness and finishing with a nice straw, honey sweetness. I rather like this, for a lager it’s well above the average muck.

Oiolosse (143) - Granada, SPAIN - MAY 24, 2017
Aromas de malta y maíz. Color oro pálido, con cabeza blanca, algo de persistencia y no lazada. Cuerpo ligero y carbonatación animada. El sabor es malta, reminiscencias metálicas. Lager normal, fresca. Nada extraordinario.

Greetings from Bydgoszcz, Poland to all Beer Geeks and Hopheads around the world!

gripweed57 (2314) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2017
From old tasting notes. Bright yellow gold color. Small bubbles lead to a big creamy white head. Fresh malty aroma. Crisp light malt flavor is balanced well by a dry hop finish.

Acaro (176) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 3, 2017
Aroma: Cereal and nuts. Appearance: Gold color with clear sparkling liquid and minimal white head. Taste: Light sweet notes and medium bitterness. Palate: Light body with oily texture and lively carbonation. Short bitter astringent finish. Overall: Soft and easy to drink. A bit of alcoholic touches in the end. Not great but not bad touches either.

Can from Hotel Mystays vending in Akasaka. Clean, sweet, some sharp hops in there somewhere. Pretty dece.
